Kanye West, Lil Wayne, & Keyshia Cole Celebrate Leonardo DiCaprio’s Oscar Win

Leo finally did it. After coming up empty-handed after five acting nominations since 1993, Leonardo DiCaprio won his first Oscar on Sunday (Feb. 28) for his portrayal of Hugh Glass in The Revenant.

Thanks to his long overdue win for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role at the 88th Annual Academy Awards, Leo also received major props from the hip-hop community, including Kanye West.

“Finally!!! Our guy,” Yeezy tweeted. “We’re so so happy for Leo!!!”

As Legend noted, DiCaprio’s speech was also noteworthy last night. While onstage, Leo spoke about the importance of understanding climate change.

“Making The Revenant was about man’s relationship with the natural world,” he said. “A world that we collectively felt in 2015 was the hottest year in recorded history. Our production team needed to go to the southern tip of this planet just to be able to find snow; climate change is real, and it’s happening right now. It is the most urgent threat facing our entire species and we need to work together and stop procrastinating.”
